Wales needs to do more for energy investment, conference told

Wales needs to do more to attract investment from energy companies, according to experts speaking at a conference on Monday.

There was harsh criticism of government leadership, while mixed messages from politicians were also criticised as being a barrier to investment.

Speakers at the Policy Forum for Wales in Cardiff called for change and said planning was slow and bureaucratic.

The conference was looking at new ways to attract energy companies to Wales and ensure supplies were sustainable and affordable.
